I purchased a Cookshack M025 last week and it was shipped on Monday. The wait is almost unbearable. I have already purchased a used SS table from a restaurant supply house to perch it on. A terrific find at only $75. I have been reviewing recipes and will start with a packer brisket for next weekend. Have invited the neighbors so have to make sure all is operating perfectly. Will smoke a test chicken first and see how it all goes. After inviting them for the "first" smoke it occurred to me that I should make sure it is working correctly. The agonizing wait continues. Have done brisket before on my Brinkman offset, but tending to a charcoal cooker overnight is not fun. At least for me. Am looking forward to less tending and more eating. I have also been reading sausage recipes for my first smoke on an elite. Waiting!!
